FTP uploads was a constant problem here

problems it caused.

"it was broke so we fixed it"

Interesting that I used ftp uploads for my digital library and never had problems until OCLC integrated adobe reader and flash into their project client.

The Archive downloads FLAT OUT in the last hour.

For a few hours before it was totally DOWN.

But was it my system upgrade or was it the Archive down for an upgrade?

Can somebody tell me?

I spent a day going thru my fault logging, researching, and I discovered an optional Windows upgrade, which I first had trouble using, further research gave me another upgrade to do first.

Was it me, or the Archive doing a fix, in any case, I will post links to my upgrade sources shortly, maybe Gerry knows from looking at my upgrades whether it helped fix things for me.

I have got other WWW commitments first, I might notice improvement elsewhere, but amazingly, I just noted my CPU is down to 6%, hitting 45% spikes when various Apps check the WWW, this morning, when I had no tabs open for the Archive, it was hunting constantly, 55% to 75%

My error logs, did suggest the issue began way back when Gerry began having trouble, and I posted that something major had changed, and all my Apps were getting updates.

MS changed something.

I have not ever seen my CPU down to 3% before when using Firefox, yes, I suspect now an issue happened with IE8 came out.

I suspected MS might have done something with, or for IE 8, to discredit Firefox.

the upgrade I got, I am guessing was needed due to a new IE8 feature which Firefox got in 3.5 recently

The archive was down; since they usually do not say why we can only guess. There is a problem with processes runnig while using flash and other plugins. Be sure to go into the start menu and delete all adobe and flash processes set to run on startup; they are not needed. A good piece of software for this is open source Ccleaner at:

http://www.ccleaner.com/

also try out defraggler and recuva; two other good software apps.

I guess you both saw the message from Pooh. Apparently they think that flash is the next best thing since sliced bread. We will just have to deal with it from our end. As I said you should use kmeleon as the browser; it has very litle overhead and will not hit your processor as hard.

I am putting things up but the share button is very flaky.

Best wishes,

gerry

I agree with you. cleanning registry and defrag help to improve computer performance. Also you can check system services using freeware T55

I got further info re Pooh's posting.

Also, it appears my updates were relevant, I am just preparing a posting with the info, I need to do a restart on Firefox, to see if any issue repeats, also a HDD of mine had some errors today, I think maybe caused by my upgrade, whatever, I just changed a setting, which should fix it.

My updates seem to have really fixed everything on my PC, so whatever the Archive was down for, I still had issue to fix myself, my informant told me it was related to a FlASH conflict. But I am researching that before I comment, but my earlier posting to reply to Pooh appears extremely relevant now, my informant is not aware of the IA or my issues with it. So, his information was unsolicited.

Like me, he has Asperigers Syndrome, and he is on the WWW almost 24/7 but with different interest, so he picked up tit-bits of info elsewhere that fitted my info.

That SHARE button drives me crazy, very likely some people with epilepsy could have seasures triggered by it

Peter,

Down load Ccleaner from this link:

http://www.ccleaner.com/download

It will help clean up registry issues after every upgrade of installation of software.

I am now catching up. Could you repeat your advice, for one reason, I need to tell some other people.

The replacement for Windows IE updating. (A friend in the USA could use it

All other suggestions.

However, why not create a doc for the IA of all that?

Peter,

Yes I intend to create a doc for what you ask. Answer always seems to be, we must do it ourselves. I am back on the linux box and it is apleasure to work in a well designed environment. I am using midori for my web browser and it is even faster than keleon (written with GTK toolkit:

http://www.twotoasts.de/index.php?/pages/midori_summary.html

Windiz is at:

http://windizupdate.com/

Windiz states:
Good reasons to use WindizUpdate
No personally identifiable information is collected from your computer.
No more unwanted spyware -- Microsoft Internet Explorer can finally be removed from your computer (if that were possible).
It lists just the updates you need. If an update has been superceded by a newer one, it will not ask you to install the older one.
Using enhanced data from MBSA, WindizUpdate will find more security patches needed for your O/S than the "other" website.
If there is a security issue with a component that is not yet installed, it will not ask you to update it. For example, if you have not installed hyperterminal, it will not update it.
It is not restricted to just Microsoft products. Software from other vendors can also be updated.
Upgrading to the latest version of Internet Explorer is not considered a Critical Update!
Works on Windows versions no longer supported by Microsoft -- Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 95
Our plugin is not an ActiveX control.
Integrated download manager with error detection -- you can cancel downloads at any time, and the next time you wish to install the cancelled update, it will continue from where it left off. Only corrupted sections of the file are redownloaded.

It seems the archive is attempting to mirror Microhit's ideas.
